Dating Your Leo Woman

Chances are you have succeeded in the near impossibility of dating a Leo woman. The Queen of the jungle is the most dominant and extroverted of all the zodiac signs. Your Lioness is strong willed when it comes to matters of the heart like family, religion, or philosophy. Miss Leo is also humane and benevolent. That is, until you disrupt her queendom. You certainly don’t want to cross her, for she will strike back hard. She will forgive you, however, and will rarely hold a grudge. She gets her resilience from her ruling Astrological planet, the Sun.

Like the Sun, Miss Leo likes to be the brightest person in the room. She enjoys glitz and glamour celebrating her womanhood. She thrives in the spotlight is where she is most comfortable. Her creativity is way above the other Zodiac signs. She likes to pamper herself in ways a queen deserves to be pampered. She is, after all, the Royal Lioness, and the Sun makes her shine in every room. Miss Leo is a beautiful woman who makes her own spectacular solar flares.

Leo Woman in Love

Before Miss Lioness will fall for you, she must be courted, wooed, wined, and dined. Compliments and flattery are extremely important to her. She enjoys a life of luxury so be prepared to work for her. She will not accept second place or runner up to anybody or anything. She is first or she is gone.

Miss Leo, unlike her male counterpart the Lion, is quite skeptical, and won’t fall in love quickly. She does fall hard, however, when it happens. Miss Leo makes a terrific wife and mom, and she will defend her family like the lioness she is. Your Leo lady is also the most romantic of all the Zodiac signs. She is giving, kind, and loyal to anyone or any cause that holds her heart. As long as she is shown appreciation for all she is and does, she will never stray.

Leo Sun Signs are not Always the Same

Of course it is crazy to assume that all Leos are exactly alike. We are all individual creatures with unique personalities, priorities, and beliefs. To get a much more accurate idea of someone’s personality, it is best to have a birth chart, also called a natal chart.

The birth chart is a snapshot of the sky, as seen from the place of birth at the time of birth. Yes, even if your Lioness is born under the Sun sign of Leo, there are many, many influences that can alter her basic personality traits.

There are 12 houses, 9-10 astrological planets and various aspects to take into consideration. It is also important to understand one’s moon sign and rising sign to get a better idea of how that person processes thoughts, works, amuses himself, and lives life in general.

There are also three major influences in a person’s birth chart. The Rising sign, also called the Ascendant, is the Zodiac sign (or constellation) on the eastern horizon of the Earth at the time you were born. The Sun sign is the Zodiac sign where the sun was in when you were born. The Moon sign is the Zodiac sign where the moon was in when you were born. However powerful these three major influences are, the multitude of other aspects can disrupt the influence of one, two, or all three of them.

I am a Leo August 5th. This is so true.I have been with my husband 18 years. I am straight forward hard working but still have a passion in my heart. I am very loyal but you should never cross me it can be very bad. At the end of the day if you loyal to me I’ll give you the shirt off my back.

Leo Female on October 07, 2018:

Majorly of this stuff is point !!!! Winning August 4th Leo ... I'm the best, if I can be myself but, I won't bow down to no one or be exploited by no one. I give respect, so I demand mines. Other than that i try to be a sweat little kitten, if you can look pass my assertiveness and honesty - which is never intended to hurt - my goal is to always help.

Hello im a leo I hate when people paint us out to be lazy or a brat, well I am a brat but I'm not an expensive brat I'm the type of person who thinks that it's the thought that counts, so even if I did have that toaster that would make me smile and cheese from ear-to-ear because im goofy

I'm glad you enjoyed the read, ishwaryaa22! Thanks so much for your comment.

Ishwaryaa Dhandapani from Chennai, India on August 06, 2012:

An engaging hub! I am an August-born Leo. I am very much interested in astrology and reading astrology on the internet is one of my favorite hobbies. Here you correctly described the personality of a Leo woman. I agree with you. Strangely, I am not fond of philosophy. You are very much right about each and every Leo being not the same as their moon sign and rising differ which result in some alteration in their otherwise typical Leo character. A fetching hub! Well-done!

Thanks for SHARING. Awesome & Interesting. Voted up

I'm glad you enjoyed the hub, John. Thank you for commenting!

John Sarkis from Winter Haven, FL on August 01, 2012:

Great hub.

I didn't fully understand astrology until I learned about the rising and moon signs; Mercury, Venus and Mars are also important in getting an accurate astrological reading.

Thank you, kindly, Marcy! I'm sure you miss her very much.

Marcy Goodfleisch from Planet Earth on August 01, 2012:

My dear mother was a Leo, and she indeed enjoyed being the center of attention in her own way. Intrtestingly, she was often put into that situation without actually seeking it out - she was not vain, but you could tell she appreciated the attention. And as your great hub suggests, she set the tone in our household for our celebrations, church interests and other traditions.

Excellent hub! Voted up and shared!
